Weeping Willow

By |February 6th, 2014|Confusion, Introspection, Life, Lonely, Loss, Lost, Nature|Comments Off on Weeping Willow

The Willow stands central in the garden,
Weeping onto winter’s bitter shoulder.
I hear her crying in the dead of night,
I pull a pillow over my head;
But the sadness still remains.

Her slumped trunk,
Her sagging skin,
A vertical eye forever open.
Her branches hang like […]

I see the life,
I used to know,
Out of the corner of my eye,
The endless possibility and the pain.
The beauty and nobility,
The men and the women.
I feel the peace of life,
Enfold me in the gentle rain.
I see my soul,
In the leaves […]

Deaf Ears / Voices of the Lost

By |June 4th, 2013|Consciousness, Dreams, Imagination, Insight, Introspection, Life, Lonely, Loss, Nature, Spiritual, Voices|Comments Off on Deaf Ears / Voices of the Lost

Darkness falls over the land.
Speech is lost.
Deaf ears hear voices of the lost.
We speak with thick tongues and our voices are those of the message.
To receive, to deny, we care not, only that you hear us, we who are lost. […]

Just Him Again

By |April 4th, 2013|Alone, I Love You, Lonely, Loss|Comments Off on Just Him Again

As young and pretty I watched you grow
I hoped that time would help us know
We talked a little and fought a lot
But love was my basis for all thought
I hoped and dreamed of a life with joy
I never wanted your […]

The Switch

Flick the switch..that’s what
they say

on, off, on off,
it’s in people’s heads,
one flick and you’re gone…..

The switch, the disability switch-
he’s weird, she’s strange,
he’s a fool….

Don’t hang around him….

He’s handsome but he’s damaged,
why he might hurt you..

flick the switch, forget
about them….off,
fade to […]

One Billion Chances

In every schizophrenic
there is…

1000000000 reasons why?

1000000000 excuses

1000000000 tears

1000000000 suicides

1000000000 voices

give them

1000000000 smiles

1000000000 times for salvation

1000000000 hearts

1000000000 kisses

1000000000 chances

After great pain, a formal feeling comes….
-Emily Dickinson

After pain’s mind-numbing decibels,
in the stunned silence of an empty room
a crowd has just left, you feel formal,
you feel like you’re made of glass
sitting on the edge of your chair,
fingers trembling, trying to […]

Life in the land of the Dead

By |September 13th, 2012|Dark, Death, Loss, Lost, Panic, Psychosis, Senses, Trapped|Comments Off on Life in the land of the Dead

I live in the land of the dead.
Upon this path I have taken my walk alone.
My feet would hit the ground with hard and steady steps.
I hear cymbals crashing and the tuneful rhythm of the beating of drums.
I have lost […]

Trapped within a crowd of hellish strangers
I shy away as they vindictively look into my eyes and
Presumptuously, steal my thoughts-
Laughter fills the air- as
Their voices terrorize- simultaneously the voices inside of my mind echo in an
Attempt to comfort, to placate […]

Night has fallen, although
Midnight hours are never strange, and
When rain or snow,
Sometimes is
Heavily falling, though these sounds I cannot hear.
It was just another night,
Another day, or
Another minute
Just as yesterday has
Slipped through the crack
Beneath my bedroom door,
Locked, dead bolted and keyed,
I […]

There is no shoe where once one stood,
Silhouette of one man’s soul understood,
Glistening in the stream deepening,
Resilient in the mind not sleeping,
Overcome distraught with deep meaning,
Barriers of consciousness dividing the evening.

The Delusion

By |April 13th, 2012|Audio, Desire, I Love You, Loss|Comments Off on The Delusion

I see a girl
On the street
She wants to find
A man to meet
I know she thinks
Of me a lot
Her love is something
That I’ve caught
I think she wants
To meet me here
The love I feel
Sheds a tear
I sleep and think
That she will find
My […]

The Voices

By |March 31st, 2012|Audio, Dark, Insight, Loss, Psychosis, Symptoms, Voices|Comments Off on The Voices

Whence comes it, that noise in my head
They speak of secrets and dreams
Talking to me inparticular
Telling me tales of woe and misgiving
Berating me with sounds so vile
Letting me know I am not worthy of love or life
Drawing out of me […]
